Chef Tip:
Cutting a Mango
Cut a thin slice off both ends of mango and place cut side down on cutting board with the narrow side facing you; cutting as close to the center seed as possible, cut 1 side of mango lengthwise, then rotate and slice the other side; score the mango flesh inside the skin lengthwise, then crosswise, then push the skin inside out to easily remove the chopped mango; chopped mango can be refrigerated up to 3 days or frozen up to 6 months
